in reply to EMACS/Perl Tutorial

I don't know of a good tutorial, but here's some general hints.

The two EMACS modes for editing Perl are perl-mode and cperl-mode. Unfortunately, they both fail to parse Perl correctly sometimes. Still, they're better than nothing; cperl-mode has some pretty convenient features, like accessing POD documentation directly from EMACS, and is better documented (use the Perl menu and select Microdocs). I usually switch back and forth between the two modes as I get sick of the bugs in one or the other.

The indenting they use is similar to the indenting that c-mode uses; you may want to read through the documentation for that, too.
